What started out as a play on words, sort of, via Facebook posts, has turned into a goal and obsession.
The goal is simple: to get a picture of me on a unicycle, in a unitard, as a Unicorn with a Universal sign in the background, thereby adding one "uni" to the picture that initiated all this unicorn madness in the first place.
I need to get better at unicycling and now I have motivation.
As to the obsession, well that is a bit trickier....
Obviously, the whole unicorn thing started off as a tongue-in-cheek one-ups-man-ship. I get that, but things have evolved or devolved or I suppose most precisely developed.
And what I found was that Unicorns have certainly had a fall from their once legendary status to that of myth to that of satire and a certain amount of gayness.... not that that's a bad thing....
And if that is a fall....
They do say that imitation is the greatest compliment, so stir in a little late night comedy and....
Yes, this photo posted on Facebook started it all.
But a little research and yeah, just the tip of the iceberg,
Please check out one of my previous posts...Unicorn Sightings
Okay, I got a little sparkle pony and subjected it to some embarrassing posts.
"The unicorn is a legendary animal from European folklore that resembles a white horse with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead, and sometimes a goat's beard and cloven hooves. First mentioned by the ancient Greeks, it became the most important imaginary animal of the Middle Ages and Renaissance when it was commonly described as an extremely wild woodland creature, a symbol of purity and grace, which could only be captured by a virgin. In the encyclopedias its horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water potable and to heal sickness. Until the 19th century, belief in unicorns was widespread among historians, alchemists, writers, poets, naturalists, physicians, and theologians." from Wiki
The Unicorn mask rode atop the water tap on our last trek across the country, and then was kind enough to herald in our Kansas high-point.
I did not realize unicorns were mentioned in the Bible.
